This is such an Italian biscuit in my house.
Every neighbor has a slightly different recipe.
This is my Moms recipe and I love it but I did change the wine.
One cup oil
One cup of a sweet red wine. My Mom would use whatever red wine she had on hand but I like the taste of the sweet red wine.
One cup of sugar
3 heaping tablespoons of baking powder
One teaspoon salt
4 cups all purpose flour
Mix everything together and kneed till the dough is soft.
Roll into long ropes on a floured surface.
I make my biscuits into hearts but you can make circles or sticks.
One egg beaten very well.
Place on a silpac and brush with the beaten egg just to give the biscuits a nice glaze.
Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes then keep cooking in the oven till they are golden brown. This usually takes maybe a couple of minutes more.
Always look on the bottom of the biscuit to see if it is a good color.
Cool and place in a airtight container.
Serve with your best pot of tea or coffee.
